Thanks for the kind words and the great question. I would LOVE to see my stories made into movies! I cannot imagine how thrilling that would be. THE LIFE LIST was actually optioned for film by Fox 2000 in L.A.. We shall see if it ever actually becomes a movie, but it is still hugely exciting to know it's in the hands of "Hollywood".

Thanks again for taking the time to read my novels and reach out to me here on Goodreads. Wishing all the best to you!

Thanks for your question. I wrote The Life List while teaching full time. I spent every spare minute after work, evenings, and weekends at my computer. It was do-able for me b/c I don't have kids and my husband is very understanding! But after the second book sold, I knew I had to give up either the teaching or the writing. For as much as I loved teaching, it was just too much doing both. I'm writing full time now--no longer teaching. If you're trying to write while working, don't give up. And treat your writing seriously...make it a priority. You can do both, but it's not easy. I hope this helps! Good luck! (less)
